ANDREW SCHMITT | Beginning High Jump
Topic: In search of the perfect curve | NOTES >
Over the past decade, Bloom Township District 206 has proudly produced 3 IHSA State Champions and 4 Runner-up performances in the Jumps. Jelena Rowe’s 2017 6 foot performance in the High Jump was a new IHSA Meet Record. Jelena also went on to be the 2017 USATF National Champion for all US Athletes under 20 years of age. In this presentation, Coach Schmitt will detail what he has learned as to how to recruit, condition, and drill technique in the High Jump. Through video analysis, he will show the importance of the curve and how to identify and correct common errors. Andrew Schmitt is certified as a Level 2 USATF Coach in both Jumps and Sprints/Hurdles and has been coaching high school athletes for nearly 20 years.
